Bomani Jones & Pablo Torre to Host New Show on ESPN

Both Agreed to Long-term Extensions

ESPN rising stars Bomani Jones, host of ESPN Radio's The Right Time with Bomani Jones, and Pablo Torre, senior writer for ESPN The Magazine and ESPN.com, will host a newly created one-hour live program premiering Tuesday, Jan. 2, 2018 on ESPN from noon - 1 p.m. ET. More details about the show will be announced at a later date. The program will also be streamed live on the ESPN app and WatchESPN across all devices and platforms.

"Had someone asked me a year ago who I'd want to work with on a new TV show, I would have said Pablo Torre," Jones said. "Now that it's going to happen, I couldn't be more excited. We have a chance to make something new, fresh and entertaining, and I can't wait to take on that challenge."

Torre added, "Bomani Jones happens to be one of my best friends in this strange business, not least because I wind up laughing while being challenged and enlightened every time we talk. I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to turn ourselves into a live sports television show that's as fun to watch as it will be to make."

ESPN has signed Torre to a multiyear extension which will also afford him the opportunity to continue making regular appearances across a variety of shows and platforms including television shows Around the Horn, Pardon the Interruption, SportsNation, The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz and Highly Questionable. He will also continue writing for ESPN The Magazine and ESPN.com as well as regularly participate in ESPN's "The Basketball Analogy" podcast. Torre joined ESPN in 2012.

Jones, whose new multiyear extension with ESPN was announced in December 2016, will continue to host The Right Time with Bomani Jones for three hours every weekday. He will remain as co-host of Highly Questionable until late June 2017. He will also continue to appear on a variety of ESPN television and radio shows. Jones joined ESPN full time in 2013.
